Answer: 
Flip the breaker to see if that happens. If you are ok with doing that, you'll find out sooner than waiting for a power failure.

Answer: 
It will run until the bucket fills or if you have a hose connected to it for constant draining, it will always run until you reach the desired humidity. Try adjusting the setting so it's a little more humid just to see what happens when it does reach the humidity level you set it at.

Answer: 
The fan runs continuously so that the sensor can sample the air constantly. I run mine when I am not home and I turn it off for parts of the day when I am home because my area becomes uncomfortably dry and I tire of the noise after a few hours. The dehumidifier is very effective and this provides an adequate solution to the noise problem without compromising the comfort of lower humidity in my home.

It might, but if you get a hose that's longer, you could drain it into your sump pump catch basin where it will drain to the street.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 101 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 9 Months later, not reliable This worked well for a while, but the humidity reading was never accurate. Eventually it would turn off soon after you turned it on. Will work well for a few weeks and then stop working. To get it looked at, you have to send it back, which is expensive (plus, try not to get it damaged in shipping). Couldn't get a person on the phone to talk it over with. Not a good choice to use on the regular, like we wanted to do in our bathroom. August 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't waste your money had this unit less than a year--within the 1 year warranty period it stopped working. They emailed me some instructions to take it apart and check some things. Didn't help. Said I can mail it back to them for refurbishing. Some warranty. I would rather apply the money toward a new unit--from a different company. Don't waste your money. August 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not a good purchase. Product had a different method of operating than was in the manual. Very hard to use. August 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by It quit working in one day I Just set this unit up this morning and when I got home there was EC code error. I contacted customer service and they told me it could be the compressor. I only had this machine for one day. Was told I would get an email with troubleshooting ideas. If this doesn't work, then the unit will need to be shipped for warrenty work. Needless to say I am out $190.00. June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Did not last I run the unit 3 months a year and it was purchased in 2014. That means 6 months of use and for that short a time for what I paid it is not a good value. I had a Sears unit for 40 years and it still works but does not have the capacity for the basement here. I have decided to purchase another Sears unit. I will not buy another of your products as they are not worth the expense and trouble to replace every year or two. I will consign it to the recycle bin at the local transfer station. July 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It is doing an excellent job! My house needed help getting rid of excess moisture, mold was growing on my baseboards due to heavy rains. I purchased the 30 pint Portable Dehumidifier, Energy Star and have pulled 2 gallons of water every day since I plugged it in. I haven't seen a new electric bill yet to see what kind of increase I will have, but I know it has done an excellent job of removing excess humidification from my dwelling. I have only 1300 sq ft so I position it in the middle of my house and feel like it is doing great. It is relatively quiet, nothing I couldn't get used to quickly. I would highly recommend this machine. LMG March 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect product for our new house! We literally purchased this product (builder/family recommended getting a dehumidifier) the day we moved into our new 2300 finished sq foot house. We currently have this product sitting in my basement running non stop. Since we've turned it on our house has become instantly more comfortable. It's insane how a product this small can be so quiet and pull so much water/moisture out of the air. Huge benefit, it comes with a drain hose, most other products did not come with one. If you don't have a hose you are constantly having to drain the tank. For the money this is a great reliable product, I highly recommend. July 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smart purchase for me After the 1000 Year Flood here in Columbia SC in October and the rains that followed off and on for endless weeks, (39 3/8" on my little spit of dirt) I could not dry the inside of my home from the moisture (no flood water inside home, just moisture seeping up from the ground). I started to notice a mildew/mold smell and began washing walls and windows. Opening windows when it was low humidity which was not often and using fans to circulate the air. I ordered this unit and within days of use and continued cleaning of walls, windows, and carpets, the moisture level dropped from 78% to 40% and increased comfort level by 80%. It was easy to roll from room to room and empty the water it collected (I'm in my 60's). I continue to use this unit to check the moisture inside my home and run it as needed. Glad I made the purchase! December 15, 2015
